I went to the swim class this morning. We did a lot of minute long challenges there... Biceps with bands, triceps with the bands, pull ups on the diving boxes, Ab moves, Leg moves... It was a great class.
After swim, I went to the Instructor/Trainer/Sarah's house. We did a pyramid of reps. So 5x-10x-15x-10x-5x of the following exercises.
- Kettle bell swings (25lb).
- Bicep curl+press (10lb).
- Competition sit ups left side.
- Competition sit ups right side.
I'm stinking at my 300 push up goal. I thought I'd be able to get a jump start with the training session today. But not a push up in sight. Maybe I need to make pushups my goal every time so we don't have to do them. heh. I told Sarah about the goal. She's trying to do it too... but she wants to do pull ups. Yeah... I'm not going to try to match that... Lovely little 120lb Sarah... She can have all the pull ups in the world. I won't ask her to share until I'm down into the 100s.
So I was a giant stupid head about 4 weeks ago. There are girl scout cookies in my house. I ordered 3 boxes. One of each of my favorite flavors; tagalongs, samoas and thin mints. I'm taking them to work tonight to see what I can pawn off on my coworkers. And I'm allowing myself ONE a day. As soon as I go over that ONE a day... I have to throw away the rest.
Over on Allan's challenge, the rules for me are Calories: 1900 and Water: 160 oz. ONE HUNDRED AND SIXTY OUNCES!!! I made it there last night. Drank the whole thing. I've never been so excited to lose some stinking weight... Not only will there be less of me to haul around, but I can stop feeling like i'm drowning! Since the water calculation is based on half your weight in ounces.... the sooner I hit 200lbs the happier I'll be. I do well around 100oz of water.
I consistently eat fewer than 1900 calories. So I'm hoping that's not going to be an issue. I'm a highly competitive person... I kinda REALLY WANT TO WIN.
